Soldering Challenge Begins
To Our Valued Suppliers
The Space Coast Chapter SMTA will be holding our 3rd annual ‘Soldering Challenge’ at this year’s EXPO and Tech Forum January 18th at the Melbourne Auditorium. We have set the limit to 48 contestants, divided up into 8 heats. The challengers will be assigned the task of building a standard IPC mechanical sample circuit card assembly, using current soldering methods and materials, within a specified time frame. Tools will be furnished by participating vendors and suppliers, and experienced engineering staff from Harris Corporation and Career Source. will be coordinating the event, for which prizes will be awarded to the most and best solder joints per IPC610 completed during the challenge.

PRIZES AS FOLLOWS

1-55" 4k Televison
2- Touch Screen Laptop
3- $100 Gift card
4- $100 Gift Card
5- $100 Gift Card

Cyberfacturing- 3D Printed Electronics
Speaker: Mike Newton, Newton Cyberfacturing Inc.

Additive manufacturing has come a long way over the years from the days where 3D printed mechanical parts were used as mechanical models. More recently, printing technology became increasingly more precise and printed parts more represented form, fit and function. Today plastic, ceramic and metal parts can be printed as finished deliverable mechanical parts and structures. Running in parallel were efforts to develop printed electronics as was investigated by DARPA’s MICE program. Electronic materials were being developed that could achieve good bulk conductivity and new material deposition processes like direct write occurred in tandem to the materials development. All of these processes evolved to the point where interest in merging these materials and process to enable printing application specific electronic packages (ASEP). However gaps still exist, with the integration of multi-material and multifunctional; how do you simulate/model, design and fabricate using disparate software, materials, and processes. This presentation will discuss the current manufacturing maturity state of design, software, and test standards and the movement from state of the art to revolutionary art.

Preforms-New Applications, New Shapes and All New Ideas 
Speaker : Kim Flanagan, Indium Corporation

The versatile solder preform offers endless soldering opportunities and can be used in countless applications across many distinct industries. Solder preforms are a type of engineered solder that can be designed and manufactured into numerous shapes, sizes, and alloy combinations. These preforms offer an alternative soldering solution for traditional soldering methods like SMT and wave soldering. Common shapes for preforms include washers, rectangles, discs, squares, and frames. Indium Corporation has the ability to create preforms in virtually any configuration and will custom make preforms per request.
Solder preforms are used in a variety of industries ranging from Aerospace and Military to Die-Attach to Connector and Cable Assembly; and serve for several unique purposes, such as thermal interface materials and seals. They are ideal for applications where precise and consistent solder volume is essential and low voiding is desired. Preforms can be used in conjunction with paste to increase solder volume by increasing the ratio of solder to flux content in the deposit. This helps mitigate the process of step stenciling and will reduce voiding. Additionally, they can be used singularly for other purposes. InFORMS® are reinforced solder preforms that create a consistent bondline thickness to promote thermal and mechanical reliability, thus improving the overall strength and reliability of the solder joint.
Solder preforms may also come with novel flux coatings which can extend solutions not only to typical preform needs, but these solutions provide low flux spattering and low flux residue options. In many cases, the flux coating acts not only as an oxide remover, but also as an oxide barrier. They can be packaged in a variety of ways; tape and reel continues to be the most popular for use in automated processes. The diverse solder preform may possess multiple functionalities and serve purpose to endless amounts of applications in numerous industries

Design for Reliability: Overcoming Present Day Challenges for Class III Assemblies
Speaker : Ravi Parthasarathy, M.S. Ch.E., Zestron Americas

When designing Hi-Rel electronic assemblies, functionality is critical and long term reliability is essential. This presentation provides an overview of the various failure mechanisms including the challenges associated with improper cleaning, board complexity, material mix, component and package types used. Steps to reduce the risk of failure and improve the long term reliability will be presented. Case studies will be reviewed.
